BOPOLU CITY, May 4 (LINA) - The Inspector General of the Liberia National Police (LNP), Col. Chris Massaquoi has visited Bopolu City, Gbarpolu County, to assess the security situation in the country.

Addressing journalists at a local entertainment center, Col. Massaquoi said his visit comes in the wake of attacks on some police officers assigned in the county by certain residents in the mining town of Wiaman two weeks ago.

He indicated that based on the report sent to his office by the Gbarpolu County Police Detachment, he was compelled to dispatch 25 additional police officers to augment the number of officers assigned in the county.

According to the Police Inspector General, there are also plans by the government to construct a mini-police depot in Wiaman Town to ensure that law and order prevails in the town.

He maintained that the LNP will not tolerate lawlessness on the part of Liberians who should be working along with the police to maintain peace and security in the county.

He then called on citizens of the county to give the police their fullest cooperation, adding, “the police are your friend and not your enemy."

Two weeks ago, some residents of Wiaman Town attacked and wounded the former police commander of the county, Sgt. Prince Hina and his colleague during a raid on suspected drug dealers and users in the town.

About 23 persons were arrested in connection with the attack and are now in detention in Bopolu.

Meanwhile, the office of Gbarpolu County City Solicitor has completed the screening of the arrested persons to establish whether they are linked to the attack on the police in Wiaman Town.
